JB injured his left knee while playing basketball three days ago. He limped into our office due to severe pain and swelling. Our initial assessment indicated a full ACL tear that would need surgical intervention. Acupuncture (MCT) was immediately performed to reduce the severe pain and swelling in his knee.
Knowing there is a high deductible on his insurance policy, we negotiated with the imaging center for a steep cash discount on his MRI. Having necessary imaging tests done before seeing a surgeon saved him an extra trip and inevitable cost that would incur to him for his visit to a surgeon.
Because of his temporary handicap, we also lent him a pair crutches and applied for a handicap placard from DMV. Did we leave anything out? Not really...because his surgeon will certainly send him back knowing we provide excellent post-surgery care.
